"Sotol Duet" by New York based artist Jon Isherwood is a pair of carved granite sculptures that have been installed in the roundabout located at the trail-head of Panther Springs Park. Inspired by the environment within the park and the abundance of natural pink limestone beneath, the artwork is made of red and grey granite referencing the native sotol plant. The red granite sculpture sits 7 feet-high and emulates the plant above ground. The shorter grey sculpture is inspired by the earthly root of the sotol pant below ground. Presented as a pair, each sculpture compliments the other; while the red granite sculpture is more structured in form and pattern, the grey granite takes on an organic and hand molded feel with gentle folds, pushed and pulled by the artist. The artist’s intent is to "provide a place for reflection, consideration and inspiration." These form-driven stone sculptures are smooth and tactile inviting visitors to touch and explore.
